Wheel Replacement Instructions

Broken Black Plastic "Handle Caps"

All Xootr scooters sold by Xootr LLC use an all-aluminum clamp for the scooter handlebar. This clamp is essentially unbreakable. A batch of plastic handlecaps used for a time by a previous manufacturer of the Xootr scooter (Nova Cruz Products) appear to have been defectively molded by a supplier.

A Few Known Issues

Tiny squeak from hub

: This is the rubber seal on the front hub rubbing against the aluminum of the hub. It wears in very quickly and the sqeak goes away.

"Throwing a Chain"

: Pretty much any bike without a front derailleur may occasionally "throw a chain". This can happen when you shift abruptly into Gear 8 while pedalling very lightly and very fast, often down a hill. If you feel or hear anything strange in the gears, stop pedaling immediately and verify that the chain is properly seated on the front chain ring. If you grind away at the pedals with the chain stuck between the chain ring and the chain guard, you are likely to make a greasy mess of your hands pulling it out..

Quick-release seat clamps become hard to open and close

: Over time we had some customers say that the quick release seat clamps had become very difficult to open and close. We found the best solution is to start by cleaning the cam and plastic washer that it rubs against and put a little penetrating oil around the barrel that the cam and lever rotate around. You can also add a light coating of grease to the curved recess of the plastic washer that the cam rubs against, but then you will need to check and clean the washer and cam often as dirt will stick to it.
